About Zoe Partington
As a Contemporary Artist, Zoe uses her installations to develop viscerally-powerful audio visual and tactile representations of Disabled people’s journeys and experiences through spaces.
The opportunity to inform her arts practice by her own experiences of sight loss has taken her and her work on an emotional and powerful journey. It has ‘embedded the ‘power of art’ in terms of a tool for change and discourse intrinsically into her own work.
Zoe’s fascination with sharing ideas with people, through immersive and experiential experience has altered and increased architectural, arts and heritage professionals views of best practice, design and policy development.
Zoe strongly believes that in today's changing culture - our environment, both virtual and physical, would be more inspiring by placing Disabled artists as creative professionals at the core.
She has written a publication called ‘Shifting Perspectives’ for museums and galleries and the heritage sector and 'The art of De-constructing Disability'.
Zoe predominately works as a Creative Consultant for the cultural sector, a researcher, auditor and creative equality trainer for museums and galleries - helping them develop their skills and experiences for successfully meeting the needs of Disabled visitors.
Zoe is also an International Advisor - an experienced provider of training and co-consulting, for Shape London, on Transform and Brazils Unlimited programme. Assisting the British Council in Brazil to develop Disability arts equality frameworks for Brazil and 2016 Cultural Olympiad and with Japan in preparation for 2020 Cultural Olympiad.
